Robert Zemeckis is arguably a close second behind Steven Spielberg as the contemporary American director who has most consistently gained critical acclaim while generating massive box office and popular appeal with a slew of iconic films. Even Zemeckis' purported failures—and there indubitably are some—are often lionized for their breathtaking vision and utilization of modern special effects techniques like motion capture. But just a cursory review of the man's contributions to film over the past 40 years reveals a staggering array of acclaimed and often insanely popular titles: Romancing the Stone, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump, Contact, Cast Away. If Zemeckis' post-Cast Away career has been lambasted for its emphasis on motion capture, with efforts like The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, audiences have still flocked to see the movies, with Polar Express earning north of $300 million worldwide, Beowulf (which actually garnered stronger reviews than Polar) coming in close to $200 million, and A Christmas Carol doing even better than Polar, with at least the chance of repeated seasonal releases which will increase its massive third of a billion-plus take. And so it's perhaps difficult to think of Zemeckis as anything other than a Hollywood insider who can pretty much call his own shots and get virtually anything greenlit with a simple phone call or two. 'Twas not always the case, as Zemeckis himself makes clear in several of the documentaries and commentaries featured on this new three Blu-ray set celebrating the 25th anniversary of one of Zemeckis' most beloved projects, Back to the Future.
